Flamingo, Flamenco o parina grande (Phoenicopterus jamesi)
Three of five flamingo species live in Argentina: Chilean flamingo, andean flamingo (parina grande) and James’ flamingo (parina chica). These birds live in flocks near salt pans, frequently in the altitude (Northeast). Its Pink color comes from the food (crustaceans) they absorb. The parinas, which are scarce, are considered vulnerable.
